School of Design Auroville (SoDA)

The School of Design - Auroville (SoDA) is an aspiring initiative to share knowledge from experts to learning aspirants. Educating interested people especially youth on relevant open source engineering design can support many experiments carried in the past and help new sustainable products being designed and developed inside Auroville. At SoDA we are building a knowledge bank of Engineering & Design expertise.
